There are a number of documents to consider as part of an estate plan and some of those documents relate to end-of-life care and health care decisions. While millennials may be just starting their own families or venturing out into the world, an estate plan is something all need to discuss with family members. Despite the benefit of youth, anyone any age in Michigan can find themselves in a situation where incredibly important and life-altering decisions need to be made and preparation can make those situations better for all involved.
One vital document to have, regardless of age, is a power of attorney, or a health care proxy. A power of attorney will give someone the power to make legal and financial decisions if incapacitation occurs. The health care proxy is similar but gives a person power to make specific medical decisions if one is incapacitated or unable to voice what he or she wants.
